About Karli


Bio

I have been a member of the WyzAnt community for more than 7 years, during which time I have worked with several students of various abilities - including those with special needs - grade levels, etc. Each and every one of them has become my friend as well as my student. I love bringing passion and purpose to learning.

I have been a member of the WyzAnt community for more than 7 years, during which time I have worked with several students of various abilities - including those with special needs - grade levels, etc. Each and every one of them has become my friend as well as my student. I love bringing passion and purpose to learning.

Prior to launching my freelance tutoring career, I spent the preceding six months as an AVID tutor with my local public school district. In the course of any given day, I have been called upon to help students (junior high and high school) with math, history, science, physics, and English questions. In the final month, our coursework particularly emphasized ACT/SAT and AP test preparation.

I love teaching, and I love getting to know my students. I consider them my peers and friends as well as my teaching subjects. I have a passion for history, but have also studied the sciences extensively (I am actually currently a 6th grade science teacher!). I also know American Sign Language and Spanish in addition to my native tongue (English). I am anxious to share my passion for my favorite subjects and learning in general with those I tutor.

Along with my work as a WyzAnt tutor, I am also a full-time teacher with a local school district. Among my regular teaching responsibilities, I also help students with time management, goal setting, academic questions, and more.

I graduated 2 years ago with a MA Ed (master's degree in education) from the University of Colorado (Boulder). In addition to the science and social studies/ history endorsements already on my teaching license, last summer I added an elementary education (multiple subjects) endorsement as well. I am now able to serve my students even more efficiently than before!

I am new to the Charlotte area and excited to meet you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have several years' experience working with children of all ages. I am familiar with Kindergarten through 6th Grade topics, such as elementary math, general sciences, reading, writing, spelling, and so forth. I have always been an avid reader and writer, especially as an elementary schooler myself. I have recently spent several months working with Junior High Schoolers in a public education tutoring program. While somewhat outside the scope of K-6, it has enabled me to touch on and brush on subjects often first broached in the elementary school years. I have also learned to tutor these students as a peer as well as an adult role model.

Study Skills

I believe everyone has their best fit for method of study. Some people are auditory learners. Some people learn best by doing; some by reading about it. The key to developing good study skills is to decipher how you learn best. However, some standards in study skills are the same for everyone - and they are equally important. I teach skills like having a set study time, consistency, and how to maintain focus and attention. I have spent many of the last several months helping junior high and high school students learn how to study and do their homework more effectively. This maximizes the learning that is obtained by such projects. Anyone can be smart if they learn how to study right.

Social Studies

I majored in History for my undergraduate studies. I have studied world history, American History, European History, Asian History, Art History, and many other related topics. I have a particular passion for American History and the Civil War, but am a believer that learning about any time or place in history should be fun and interesting! I recently finished a 6-month stint as a public school tutor, which included all core subjects through 12th grade. My students discussed everything from beginning social studies to AP History topics. I helped them gain greater understanding of historical events rather than memorize straight facts. I also helped them prepare for upcoming relevant exams.

Sign Language

Sign Language

I studied two courses of American Sign Language while a student at the University of Utah. My professor was passionate about his subject and helped us understand Deaf culture as well as actual Sign Language. I can converse in Sign Language and have taught it on several different occasions, to groups of varying sizes and ages. I also use Sign Language at home, as my husband has also learned it. I have the advantage of having learned "academic" Sign in the classroom, and conversing with him, who knows more "slang" or conversational Sign. I enjoy teaching Sign and have had fun helping my students learn to converse with it. It is very rewarding to be able to express yourself in many different ways.

Karli Was professional, patient & instrumental in my now knowing how to cut & paste,transfer to desktop & documents, submit resumes, edit, add resume.

Kabe, 1 lesson with Karli

Excellent tutor

Karli is patient and friendly and really connected with our son right away. But what's more important than that is we're seeing great results. English was his worst subject last year and with Karli's help that's his highest grade so far this year! We highly recommend you give Karli a try.

Karli is very helpful to my 4th grade daughter

Karli has been tutoring my daughter for a little more than a month now and so far it's been great. My daughter has a tough time academically and can stay on task with Karli.

Zori, 21 lessons with Karli

Knows what is needed instantly

Karli is great at diagnosing the problem. She is also very creative at coming up with various visual or hands-on teaching methods. Energetic, creative and flexible. Great tutor.

Neda, 13 lessons with Karli

Fantastic tutor!

Ever since Karli began working with our eighth-grade daughter on her Math skills, we have seen such an improvement in our daughter's confidence and grades! Karli has a wonderful approach, a good attitude, patience and strong knowledge of the subject area, all of which have helped our daughter gain more confidence and comfort with the subject area. I highly recommend Karli as a tutor!

Angela, 29 lessons with Karli

Great Tutor!!!

My son has only had a handful of lessons with Karli and has shown tremendous improvement. Karli is easy to communicate with, efficient, and accommodating. Thank you, Karli!!!

Christy, 50 lessons with Karli

Excellent

Karli has been a guiding light in my pursuit of learning my ASL sign language. I thank her in so many ways, she has helped me so much. Karli, I thank you. Good luck in your future. You're the best.

So happy to hear it! She is a bright girl and a joy to work with.

My son says she is "awesome!"

This was our first session, but so far we are very pleased. I'll post another review after a couple weeks updating our progress.
